Atlanta DUI Lawyers

Although Driving Under the Influence is a misdemeanor, it is one of the most serious, and costly, misdemeanor offenses in Georgia. On top of the administrative consequences imposed by the Department of Driver Services after a DUI conviction, Georgia Law requires a number of mandatory conditions, which must be pronounced by the sentencing judge, every time an individual is sentenced for a DUI.

Those conditions include mandatory minimums for incarceration times, fines, and community service hours. Additionally, a DUI conviction results in the suspension of your driver’s license for a specific period of time, depending on your prior DUI history. But, even if the suspension period is over, the Department of Driver Services will not reinstate your driver’s license until you complete a Risk Reduction Program and pay a reinstatement fee.

Police officers are required to undergo DUI training courses before they are authorized to initiate DUI traffic stops. During those courses, they receive copies of DUI manuals, learn how to administer field sobriety tests, and practice using breathalyzer machines. To ensure that our clients receive the best, most knowledgeable representation, our criminal defense lawyers have participated in multiple training seminars on DUI defense.

Our criminal defense attorneys have been very successful in defending DUI cases by obtaining “Not Guilty” verdicts after jury trials, securing reductions to lesser charges, and getting cases dismissed altogether.

If you are charged with a DUI, our experienced criminal defense trial lawyers will use their knowledge and training to fight for you in court, and to minimize or eliminate the collateral consequences. We help our clients at every stage following an arrest for DUI:

  • DUI Arrest
  • Bonding Out of Jail
